15 January 2008 - Kasrils denies it

Ronnie Kasrils has denied calling for South Africa to re-arm its nukes:

"For the record, I have never said anything of the sort, nor do I believe that our country’s security would be well served in adopting such a flawed position. If anything, recent world events confirm the correctness of SA’s continued principled approach on the necessity for nuclear disarmament."

Hmm. We must take him at his word. But there are still many questions to be answered.

If the SA government backs disarmament, why has South Africa protected Iran at nearly every opportunity? And what about the claims of an Iran-South Africa axis? About South African military equipment being used by Hezbollah?

I'll try to get Venter's book and examine his claims in greater depth.

UPDATE: You know, this seems to happen a lot to Kasrils: he is reported as saying he supports Iran's nuclear program/invited Hamas to South Africa/believes Palestinians should aim their guns at Israelis/thinks SA should build nukes again, and then he denies it. Either the press--the Iranian and Palestinian press as well as the South African press--has it in for him, or he can't help but let his true feelings show now and then.

UPDATE: A J Venter has replied to Kasrils here.

Here's a true South African story documenting the desperate genocidal intent of Hamas. My wife worked at one of two Poison Centres in Cape Town and around 5 years ago (I have to check the exact date)she received a call from Gaza asking for information on what are the most lethal poisons known! Of course my wife refused to provide such information. But you can rest assured that the intent was to develop poisonous warheads for their missiles. The hippocracy of the world is demonstrated by this story. Israel has all the doomsday weapons and means for genocide but does not use them. The Palestinian leadership promotes genocide from the days of Haj Amin El Husseini advocating for it in Berlin until the present. And why has this never been widely disseminated? To prevent fear and hysteria from breaking out in the nation of Holocaust survivors, that is Israel.
